Why We Say “Happy Easter” in August

August 18, 2012 | 20 comments

 

 

He is Risen,
not only in April, but in June and October and December.

He is Risen
at midnight and noon — and even at 3:52 a.m.

He is Risen
when we feel like singing at the top of our lungs,
and even when we don’t.

He is Risen
when we need him most –
and also in those heels-dug-in moments
when we think we don’t Him at all.

He is Risen
– not for a day,
but for EVER.

We need a Savior like that.

And thanks be to Jesus, we have one.

Linking with Deidra Riggs and Sandra Heska King this weekend…

    You know what? Strangely, I was just thinking about Lent while I was putting on my makeup yesterday. (Because I do my best thinking during that time and in the shower). And you just finished my thoughts with this post. Thank you.

    Every single day of our beautiful lives IS a celebration day because of His love.

    Thank you for this beautiful reminder, to remember, celebrate and praise Him in everything and ALWAYS for who He is.

    You, my friend, wear the joy of remembering whose we are and who we are… with Truth and Grace. Happy Easter.
